, very very few other people reported it basically telling the obama administration you have got to stop. that's what his own debt commission told him, you have got to stop, all right? he is not gonna stop. he is going continue to crease the spending. >> i don't know that that's going to be very possible in the short-term. >> bill: that's what he wants to do. maybe won't get through the house, but he wants to increase the spending rather than do what the gao recommends. >> i one of the things that you said in the president's speech yesterday and set up at the talking points at the top you said it will be impossible for him to do everything he wants to do. part of yesterday's speech recognizes that, instead what the president was doing was enunciating those principles for history. i think he knows that he has got a very difficult slog in this congress over the next four years, he wants to be able to say here is the goals, here is the direction i'm pointing in i don't know exactly what we can achieve but this is what we want to do. >> bill: i want my president to be a problem solver and i
from his camp. and it's not clear that that camp is going to reach out to the obama administration, that that camp is interested in a peace offering even if the economy is in free fall. it might be convinced that its own survival is intrinsically linked with a conflict with the united states. so even if he's reaching out and he has an intended message of one, it's unclear if that message is going to be received. in the middle east the idea of winning and losing is a little different. there's a much longer historical perspective. the muslim brotherhood, for example, doesn't see this election by morsi or other muslim brotherhood gains as a victory. it's a step on the road to establishing a world as it existed before the collapse of the caliphate, before the disaster, as it sees it, of all the world war i agreements. so it's about winning battles as opposed to winning a decisive war that's going to have a decisive peace. >> richard, you're optimistic this might get through? >> i think i am -- >> i mean steve. >> i think richard is absolutely right. we don't know ultimately how they'll
for the obama administration to stand strongly on the side of fairness and equality. one of them is that the supreme court is going to take up marriage equality in march. his department of justice will have the opportunity to put in briefs and we know that the obama administration is opposing the so-called defense of marriage act. i think the real question that came up at the white house press briefing is whether they will oppose the discriminatory prop 8 from california. the question is whether states can discriminate and what the president thinks about that. i hope that he will take the logical next step from his beautiful remarks yesterday and weigh in on both issues. >> john: wayne let me put it to you. we saw it in the first term. the president took away don't ask, don't tell for our troops serving and even more powerfully, came out in favor of marriage equality even if that wasn't any policymaking on his part. what would you like to see him do in the second term? >> we've come so far so fast and what i would like to see the president do is consider openly gay person for cab
's support to be rallied to achieve? >> i think ten years ago, even in the beginning of the obama administration, i think once he was elected, we all thought progressive president, good things are going to happen. then, mitch mcconnell and john boehner came and said stop. i think people just thought that will happen because we elected him. we learned that. the president learned it. i think msnbc learned it and congress and the public most importantly learned it. that this just doesn't happen because of an election. it happens because of an election and then it means going online, it means doing rallies, it means educating your neighbors at church and the workplace and in school. >> now, you're using the word takers in this speech, i mean going right after the right and a reminder of people what the election was about. i looked right across at paul ryan when he said it. i mean, given the republicans parties and their positions right now, can he get this agenda done? >> i think republicans sometimes look to the next election, too. and when they think about how the demographics are c
attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakistan from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the deaths of dozens of people, including up to 48 of the captured workers. algerian forces say they recovered at least 25 bodies after storming the militant held gas complex saturday, bringing the confirmed death toll to
not letting guns get into the hands of people who should not have them. >> that's right. >> julian, the obama administration knows they have to keep the public pressure on this issue. the president says he's going to lean in, he's going to campaign. they have released video from the kids who wrote letters to the president about guns. let's take a look. >> bullets don't have eyes. it can hurt anyone. i am really scared of guns and criminals around the world. i love my country, and i want everyone to be happy and safe. no guns, no guns, no guns, no guns. >> obviously, in addition to that we've got parents, you've got gabby giffords and her husband mark announcing a new initial, obama for america also announced they're going to do action for america as an advocacy organization. this is their first project. but i guess my question to you is, is that going to be enough? what will it take, if this isn't enough, to keep this on the front burner, to get real action, what's it going to take? >> i think it's three things, karen. i think it's bold leadership from the president, which we're seeing. i thi
of the obama administration two. we continue this evening with a conversation about the presidency of barack obama on the occasion of his second inauguration this time four years ago the world watched as the first african american was sworn in. it was an historic day. mr. obama came to the president in the midst of a global financial crisis and two wars. he has had to reshape america's role in the world, the boldness of his accomplishments-- health care reform-- has been divisive. in his first inaugural speech president obama promised a new vision for a troubled country. >> today i say to you that the challenges we face are real they are serious and they are many. they will not be met easily or in a short span of time but know this, america, they will be met! (cheers and applause) >> rose: four years later much work remains on major issues from climate change to immigration reform to the debate about taxes and spending and the most recent focus on gun control joining me to assess barack obama is a group of distinguished scholars and historians. from boston, dorr wince kearns goodwin, she won
. and i've been speaking to some people very close to the obama administration, who played a big part in his foreign policy team and i think they realize big challenges are coming, particularly in the middle east. >> and what's coming is the state of the union which is the president's next chance to do a deeper dive and get granular, but fate has a funny way. >> and things are a little bit out of his control. i don't know what he would say in the -- in the state of the union that's very different from what he said here. he can outline principles which are we support democracy. but if you're dealing with a region that is collapsing, state implosion in parts of the middle east, renewed and revised tribalism and conflicts, i don't know how defending a general principle of supporting democracy is going to contain the challenges in a very big region of the world. >> in a way, david, this mirrors the conference you had yesterday on "meet the press." it's kind of the changing world, the unanticipatables, the algerias that we did not know were out there a week ago. >> and this question too th
that in an inaugural address? >> it's a little bit surprising, but given his history, the obama administration's history with the repeal of don't ask, don't tell and also his revolution of gay marriage, it's not that surprising. >> what about you, greg? you were surprised he specifically mentioned stonewall. >> i was surprised that he mentioned stonewall because it's not something you hear when they talk about civil rights, especially from a president, so that really struck me when he said that. >> what do you think it does for gay people not only in this country but around the world? >> i hope it pushes us forward and makes us equal with everyone else, included with everyone else in the country. >> do you feel an additional sense of pride having heard the president mention that today? >> yes, i do. i really do. it makes me feel good to be an american right now and makes me think things will be better in the future. >> thanks pho boto both of you, thanks to the students from kentucky who stood around and waite waited. for you, it was really a speech about better equality? >> i think speeches a
of that effort, and we will be. >> and what is the united states government, the obama administration willing to do to be part of that effort of the french invasion of mali? >> well, you know, it's important to see an international effort. there are european countries that will be helping on training and other steps. and the united states is helping as well. we're helping on airlift and intelligence support. we'll look at other ways to try to provide assistance, as well as training. this has to be an international effort, because frankly, al-queda is an international threat. the best way to handle this now is to have all of these countries working together to do everything we can to stop al-queda. >> mr. secretary, you do not imagine u.s. fighting forces being involved in mali alongside the french at this point? >> no, i don't see troops on the ground. but i do see the kind of assistance that will help the french and ultimately help the african nation go into mali and really provide more permanent security there. >> what are some of the national security threats over the next four years and n
or hillary clinton or president obama, or any one of them in the administration is to mislead, to actively try to prevent false facts about what happened in benghazi. and no one has ever come close to suggesting any kind of motive. >> no, i think that is absolutely right. hillary clinton demonstrated what a professional she is by saying she absolutely takes responsibility. and with the review board's work, she has gone to sort of look through this question of what ought to be a direct reporting of crises up to the secretary level. but also what has not received as much attention, she is warning there are other facilities out there today. very true on the day the tragedy occurred. people died, ambassador stevens and three other great americans died in this conflict. and we today have under-resourced defenses for other facilities. and she said we need to fix this. and those members of the gop who were launching the attacks on her, some of them have been part of the process of trying to undermine diplomacy of the state department for years. and this is time to actually step up and resource th
instead of barack obama being sworn in again yesterday, the romney/ryan administration would have done everything they could to overturn roe versus wade. and that means that if there were a vacancy on the supreme court, any romney nominee to the supreme court realistically could be expected to be a surefire bet to vote to overturn that 40-year-old decision. when president obama leaned over to hug the rather fierce but rather small figure of 79-year-old supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg yesterday at the capitol luncheon that was filled with all the washington vips, and president obama had that moment with ruth bader ginsburg, that physical contact, that hug between that particular justice and this particular president was a very real manifestation of the consequences of this election we just had. today outside the supreme court, as they do every year on the anniversary of roe, anti-abortion groups protested, expressing their view that it should be illegal to get an abortion in this country. there were also counter protests. people and groups supporting the decision defending abo
two, the lowest since the eisenhower administration. >> i don't think ike liked natural balls anymore than president obama. >> do you like natural balls? >> no. they're miserable. >> there's another tradition i think we started here, the natural hangover coverage at our favorite watering hole. another fantastic crowd, hi, everybody! what are you doing awake? ion what to say. it's packed, the other room, too. >> i know. >> they are drinking like fish. >> i know. they are drunk already. of course, if you're a conservative this morning, you really want to be drinking and drinking hard. it's tuesday, january 22nd. with us on set we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle and msnbc political analyst and former chairman of the republican national party when there was a republican national party and al hunt and anchor for world news, america katty kay. the reviews are in. >> the reviews are in. >> it was a liberal speech for a liberal constituency. the left is saying that, the center is saying that and the right is saying that. the only thing i've seen all week since being here any progressive
, the incoming treasure secretary. both parts of the administration. president obama facing a bit of a fight for his next secretary of defense, chuck hagel, on capitol hill. >> the president, with a big smile. same, big, gregarious charm on the platform. >> as you were talking about the clinton foundation, president carter's work, as well, president obama will have to start thinking what he will do in his postpresidency. matthew dowd, talk about president george w. bush. he also has set up a foundation in texas. >> one of the things that immediately happened afterwards, was the decision where the presidential library is. what initiative do you want to be in, postpresidency. and how do you want to conduct yourself in the aftermath of your presidency? and that's a huge part of what goes into the next four years. >> crowd gathering on the mall right there. >> again, we urge all of you to bring your families in to watch because an inauguration speech is not just another speech. i want to go to mark updegrove right now. as you watch, as a historian. mark? >> the inauguration speech is an opportun
's me! >> it's really brilliant what she's done in keeping a secret. in previous administrations, while there was always interest in what the first lady wore, there was never this read carpet moment. >> reporter: red was definitely on her mind. an exclusive look at jason wu's sketch of the obama gown, and clearly there was something here that caught the first lady's eye. in choosing wu, she once again puts the taiwanese born designer, who lives in new york, on the biggest world stage. not to be forgotten, another outfit on display. the one the first lady wore on inauguration morning. her choice this time? coat and dress by american designer thom browne. we tracked him down at his hotel in paris. celebrating the moment. >> you can never predict life to happen this way, and i'm so fortunate, so honorsed that she chose mine. >> reporter: the 47-year-old designer choes fabric based on men's silk ties. >> i had an idea that the president would be wearing navy, and i wanted to do something where she would look really good with him. and i chose a dark navy tie, which actually a silk jacquard f
